Hey everybody, J-Mac here with our 2013 Mustang Project High Impact. Wanted to show you how we completely change the rear appearance of this car. By adding the 2013 GT500 rear valance and axle back. Now this thing looks great, sounds great, just a completely awesome kit, however you do have to cut your stock bumper cover.
Luckily, Ford showed you exactly where to cut on the backside of the bumper. This becomes a complete snap-on and axle back is a direct bolt reusing the stock hangers and it attaches to the stock tail pipes. Now check out latemodelrestoration.com's blog for more installation details.
The installation of these quad-pipe Shelby mufflers and rear valance was as straight-forward as this website says it is. Everything was marked on the back of the bumper and I used a Dremel with cutting wheel to cut away the lower section. I drilled out the moutning tab holes and used a Dremel small stone to shape those holes.
The valence is a tight fit, which is good.
The exhaust sounds awesome! Absolutely no drone and is as quiet as stock while cruising down the interstate. But when you get on it, it definately has a deepr, louder note to it that sounds much more authoratative than the stock GT setup.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Yes, its expensive; I felt terrible for spending that much money on mufflers and a piece of plastic. I even wanted to throw up while cutting my brand new cars bumper. BUT, when the installation is done and you start the car up... WOAH! The noise the car makes is intoxicating. The exhaust note the car now has is how a muscle car should sound. Perfect, is the word that best describes the sound. The look is just killer. It certainly took longer than expected, but Its nerve racking to disassemble a brand new car.

Had a problem with an order/quality issue. I put up a review stating so, and was contacted by Mike Linley, who was soooo nice and sooo professional, I almost felt bad about my review !! I felt the review was necessary because of bad welds/paint. Mike explained that they had a particular issue with that supplier and they had changed suppliers because of it. I must have mistakenly got an old set. (upper/lower Control arms-Foxbody). Mike asked a few questions, and was Sending me an updated replacement set while we were on the phone.!!! This is what I wish all Vendors would do; no arguments, no blame, no B.S. !! This is why LateModel stands out as an upstanding company, and backs up their products with AWESOME Customer service.
